There will be a "Mixer event" after the seminar and talk, where you will be given the opportunity to speak with OIST staff about OIST's PhD program, research activities or English learning methods, etc. Please come to OIST Café if you wish to improve your communication skills in English or if you would like to become an international scientist!
